Reviewer: Jools McSweeney - favoritefavorite - February 4, 2009
Subject: over-romanticising of Scots history
As usual, the history is written by the winners. At the death of Macbeth of Moray and the dispossession of the MacSween, the writing was on the wall for the Gaelic highlanders. Scotland has been run by lowland anglo-normans ever since and are not true Scots. Most of the true West Highland and Hebridean kindreds ended up in Ulster by the middle of the 14th century. With Buchan laid waste and with the MacDougalls cowering, the MacDonald split in half, only the MacSween stood firm, but our stand was ultimately unsuccessfull because of the perfidy of Angus MacDonald. This is why the MacDonald will never be a truly noble clan such as the MacSween.
